OK, I also take the possible attempted theft of the domain seriously.
I have re-locked them as requested.

#1 and #2 are done.  Your nameservers are active.

I think the attempt couldn't go anywhere as long as they didn't have
that code.  But I concur that re-locking the domains will deter any theft.

Coincidentally, another pending domain transfer was initiated by a friend
this evening.  I was holding that domain until he was ready to take it.
(I'll continue maintaining his web site and mail list for a while.)

So I'll soon have very current numbers on the length of time an
inter-registrar transfer going from DomainDiscover to GoDaddy.
